NASA is expected to release exciting information regarding space exploration. Daily Mail is reporting that they have found habitable zones and a “potential alien habitat” on one of Saturn’s moons.

“These new discoveries will help inform future ocean world exploration – including Nasa’s upcoming Europa Clipper mission planned for launch in the 2020s – and the broader search for life beyond Earth,” NASA announced.

NASA is planning to announce it has found chemical activity in an ocean on Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons. This could be huge news. Scientists hope organisms can exist in these conditions.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft was launched 20 years ago but it is running out of fuel. It has gathered a ton of information on Saturn and its moons, but will soon meet its demise there. On September 15th, Cassini will plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere and burn up like a meteor, becoming part of the planet it has explored. It will send data back to earth on its final assignment.

NASA’s work has been outstanding in regards to space exploration. It’s exciting to think of what is out there beyond our own atmosphere and within our own solar system.
